Actually it seems to correct itself after a reboot? Hmmm. Odd.
Same issue with owncloud 7.0.4 on Phone OnePlus One - Cyanogenmod 11 M11, Android 4.4.4 here.
I guess it is not a problem with the carddav backend because the sync doesn’t start just in that moment, but later on.
an “adb logcat” on this action did not post any output.
edit:// looks like a limitation of the contacts app, contacts+ is doing the job: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.contapps.android
Please provide steps to reproduce. Also note that “starring” is not defined in VCard, so DAVdroid uses the custom property X-DAVDROID-STARRED which if course can’t be understood by other clients. Other custom propertys by other clients (maybe Evolution) are preserved, but ignored.
I have a similar problem with davdroid + owncloud, I can’t star old exisiting contacts, if i create a new one with the davdroid account it works. If I click the star on an old contact it turns white, like it’s supposed to, but I don’t see anything in the logcat with regard to that action. But if I add “X-DAVDROID-STARRED:1” to an old contact manually in the MySQL database entry for the old contact it gets synced to the device once I star a new contact and initiate a sync from the device.
So I end up with a new and an old contact starred…I can’t unstar the old contact again, if I try that the star turns empty but upon entering the contact again, the star is solid again.
Staring/unstaring the new contact works fine though.
Sorry, to bring this up again! @rfc2822
Problem: Can’t ‘star’ contacts
Steps to reproduce:
Expectation: Contact is in the ‘starred contacts’ and if you open the contact, the star icon is white.
Reality: Contact isn’t starred and if you open the contact, the star icon is not white.
Just wanted to say that “I got this problem too” with an owncloud 8 server provided by zaclys (french provider). Hope something can be done.
Could it be that another client drops the unknown property?
@untitaker I don’t think so, as it works for contacts, which are connected to other apps - but not with contacts, only used by DavDroid.
I had the same problem on an Xperia Z3C and CM12.1, using DAVDROID to synchronize my contacts with my ownCloud server. And before with my S3mini and the same OS.
I was unable to star or unstar my contacts with the contact defaut app, but it was working with Contact+
I think i found the problem, it’s come from the IUD of the contacts.
When UID is of the form XXXXXXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXX, it works.
When UID is of the form XXXXXXXXXXXX.XXXXXXXXXXX.vcf
The problem is the dot and the extension at the end of your contacts.
So, to solve the probem, I exported all my contacts on a vcf file. Edited it with a text editor to delete all “@myowncloudserver.com” and “.vcf” (use the find and replace fonction), and then imported my contacts again on my server,
I resynchronized my phone and everthing is working fine.
@androdid Do you experience the same issues again if you re-add those parts to the UID? If you have some items with the
@-parts in the UID, and some not, do these exhibit different behavior when starred?
Yes I’ve tried to re-add the @ part on some contacts, and I had the same issue with it.
It looks like when a contact has a @ part (or even just .vcf), contact app can’t add or remove the X-DAVDROID-STARRED:1 line
Contact+ doesn’t have this problem.
